Rant: I have lost precious files on several occasions using this 
practice. I know many people use this practice since it's easy, but 
it's not foolproof. At the office, I get almost physically abused if I 
mention the practice, let alone use or advocate it. :-)

There even exist 'backcopy' or 'sync' Ant tasks supporting this 
practice. Forrest had one IIRC, but now they support in-place editing 
for most of the website content.

But as they would say in Dutch, "efkes flink zijn" seems more sensible.
